During the warm summer months, N and I have no problem getting the pups to go out into the backyard to do their business, but once the temps go down and the rain begins to fall it's near impossible to get Hope to go outside on her own. Izzy on the other hand, is usually pretty good unless it's a downpour.
And so this past week I've begun to fit a short dog walk into my weekday AM routine. I was surprised at how simple it was with everything else-- you know, the usual stuff plus 40 minutes on the treadmill.
Imagine how pleased and surprised I was when N got up before me on both Saturday and Sunday this weekend and walked the dogs.
Even better than a dozen roses.
